I dunno, but to me it looks like the tubing might not because to do that angle. I had to rearrange some stuff in my setup because there was a few points that looked good on paper, but when I attached the tubing to the barb it would get pulled off. Now, with good securing clamps/ties that's not a problem, but didn't want to risk the tubing getting pulled off after being there for a few weeks ya know?

Nice setup. And I would leave the D-Tek alone, the outlet on top helps maintain a good bleeding of air.
For fans, some good 38mm would be good, maybe something like this with a fan controller:

Nice MB too

With the fan's how do you make the wires look nice and stuff like that? and will the cords be long enough or should i buy extensions just incase?

What I did is run 2 18 guage wires down each side of the rad and cut the fan wires short then soldered them to the 2 long wires and put a 4 pin molex on the end of it...Then just make some long 4 pin wires and run them to your PSU...You only need 2 wires in the 4 pins yellow-12V and a black ground....

You don't want to hook high wattage fans like that to your mobo fan headers they can burn them out...Either hook them directly into a psu or hook them to a fan controller....

This is the sleeving I used...

Grey FLEXO PET 1/8" Sleeving - 5 Foot Section

This is the heat shrink...

3/8" Black Heat Shrink Tubing - 1 ft

I made a little enclosure for a 100W PSU that I will use to power my rad fans..The 4 pull fans will be on all the time...I have 2 switches on it and can turn on or off 2 push fans at a time..Here are some pic's you can see the sleeving in them....
